Behind the Click: Securing the Future for Black Women and Girls in Tech
Black Girls CODE is excited to bring together a stellar panel of women of color in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) for a lively discussion on technology and social activism entitled: “Behind the Click”: Securing the Future for Black Women and Girls in Technology. This panel will highlight the transformative work that Black Girls CODE has embarked on over the past seven years to bring girls of color into the field of tech as transformational change agents. This panel will include a cross-section of current BGC students, alumni, and leading WoC role models discussing how we utilize a broader conversation on intersectionality to create more opportunities for girls of color in STEM and to drive social change movements powered by technology.
